Hairspray

Postby muggins » Thu Nov 01, 2018 12:43 pm

I forgot when I posted my trees query ...

Which hairspray do I need for spraying shrubbery, trees and suchlike in order to fix the foliage in place well enough to stand a very careful light Hoovering if need be in the future?

A specific product name please so I don't end up asking some clueless muppet in a store, and preferably one that doesn't stink like a tart's handbag.

I used a cheap "own brand" variety from Morrisons, seems to do the trick, will take a snap of the can tonight.

Thank you Jim. I just checked the Morrison's site and it wasn't obvious to me which is their own brand ... :roll:

It used to be the case that you chose the cheapest hair spray or the one rated "do not buy" in the reviews, you are looking for the one that leaves the hair "stiff and sticky" or gets "nul point" from the reviewers.

What hair? The bit that's left doesn't have enough to stick together.

Jim, thank you very much indeed for taking the time and trouble. Off to Morrisons tomorrow then, and if they don't have it, Poundland on Monday. I've just been reliably informed that they do a hairspray in a gold can with a blue stripe which is suspected of actually being relabelled aerosol varnish ...

Of course if you went for pine scented you could add that extra dimension to your trees...
